Postcard from Turkey!

Today I got a nice postcard from Turkey! The postcard shows the interiors of the House of the Virgin Mary, which is located on Mt. Korsessos. It is both a Catholic and Muslim shrine and was discovered in the 19th century. Many Catholic pilgrims come to the shrine and many papal visits to the shrine have also been conducted. It is believed that Mary was taken here by St. John before her Assumption. Thanks Bahadir!
